Robin Williams to play Susan Boyle?

Talk about one of the most bizarre film stories of the year - Robin Williams admits he has been asked to play Susan Boyle in a biopic of the reality TV star.

The Scottish singer shot to fame after wowing the world with her performances in ITV show Britain's Got Talent earlier this year. While there have been rumours about a biopic being planned, no one would have guessed they would want the Mrs Doubtfire star to play the lead.

Talking to the Daily Star, he said, "I've been asked if I want to play Susan in the movie. I think she's incredible. That clip of her singing on Britain's Got Talent was extraordinary. So inspiring. It was quite a shock when she began to sing.

"She's got a really great voice."

Susan Boyle has become a household name in the US, and has even appeared on Oprah Winfrey's chat show.
